FAITH IS A FORM OF COUR
AGE: By faith, Abraham, when he
was called to go out into a place
which he should after receive for ah
inheritance, obeyed: and he went out,
not knowing whither he went.
Red Cross Class
The instruction in First Aid con
ducted here during the past two
weeks by the American Red Cross
closed with nearly all of the students
gaining a grade that recognizes them
as qualified to teach others the first
The class in itself was a splendid
project and as a result of the class,
some thirty people of the county are
now in the position to render service
to the community in cases where first
aid may be needed.
Not only this, but the Perquimans
Chapter of the Red Cross plans now
to hold additional classes in the
course, and thus enable other inter
ested people to know the "Do and
Don't" in accident cases. The knowl
edge gained through the study of this
course is well worth the time it takes
to acquire it ... So be on the look
out for the announcement of future
classes, and if at all possible, join
Aid To Children
Today we are carrying a story say
ing that very shortly an eye clink
will be held in Hertford. At the
present time 287 Perquimans school
children have had a preliminary ex
ami nation and it was found that 35
of these children needed additional
examination and possibly glasses.
More than likely that number will in
crease as the balance of the county's
school children are examined.
The Hertford Lions Club, through
cooperation with the State ComnuV
sion for the Blind, will make it possi
ble for those children who need glass
es, and who are unable to buy them,
to obtain the needed aid.
We congratulate the Lions Club for
sponsoring this worthy project, for
certainly those children who benefit
through this clinic and who will re
ceive better vision by it, will enjoy
life better for having had this treat
